Update Feb 25th, 2021: PPOW Gallery has posted the video of this event on Vimeo. This December 10, 2020 reading with John Keene and Eileen Myles was a kind of belated book party for the publication of Wite Out: Love and Work, a reprise of the 2011 book party at PPOW for Wite Out's prequel, The Public Gardens: Poems and History.
At this event on December 10, 2020, John and Eileen read their own work (Eileen's most recent publication is For Now; John's new book of poems is due out soon). They also read some selections from Wite Out. They chose excerpts from my book that are too private for me to read aloud in public, and it was moving to hear those poems/passages in their voices.
I think we were all surprised at how warm and interesting the evening turned out to be. (Of course it would have been a different kind of event if the November election had turned out differently.) You can watch and listen to the readings and our conversation here. (I mentioned John's blog in our talk, I think; I've learned so much from reading his posts on art, literature, and much more. You can find that here.)
